This statement was just released by the Town of Cheverly and Mayor Mike Callahan. We are proud to bring it to you. Congratulations to these fine winners!
Cheverly Recognizes Annual Volunteer Award Winners
As Mayor it is my honor and privilege to recognize, with consultation from the Town Council, two citizens or Community Groups whose efforts epitomize the spirit of volunteerism here in the Town of Cheverly. Volunteerism is the life blood of Cheverly.
While the Town Government provides great Public Safety and Public Works services it is our volunteer organizations that makes Cheverly a great place to live. For example; we are only halfway through May and already volunteer organizations have: started the Tee-Ball Season, hosted the Weekday Nursery Truck Touch, hosted the Cheverly Plant Sale, and kicked off the Community Market Season.
What better day to honor this year’s award winners than on Cheverly Day, where volunteers from the Community Market and the Cheverly Day Committee have combined their effort to have one spectacular day.
This year’s winners are:
Mayor’s Award - Volunteer of the Year: Steve Brennan and Legion Post #108
Steve Brennan has led the American Legion’s efforts to create a bond between the Legion and Cheverly residents. In doing so, Steve has provided Cheverly residents with numerous opportunities to gather together and meet their neighbors. Cinco de Mayo, Halfway to St Paddy’s, the Chili Cook-off, a Beach Party and Movie Night are just a few of the events the Legion opened its doors and invited the community to join in.
For fostering community spirit, Steve Brennan is Cheverly’s Volunteer of the Year.
Jack Wheat Award: Progressive Cheverly
While some may see Progressive Cheverly as a political organization, it is clearly much more than that. One service that Progressive Cheverly provides all Cheverly residents are valuable forums on many different topics of interest. Of particular value are forums with candidates for elected office and elected officials.

Intrepid motorist and lady about town Marcie Goeke-Morey snapped this photo on Wednesday while on Landover Road. Wisely, she posted it to Facebook (because that's just what we do these days) and a long discussion ensued, ensnaring even departed CHVBlog & CHVchick personalities, such as Pennsylvania's Dan & Stella Scott (though some say they'll always be part of Cheverly.)
Here are selections from the comments that accompanied it -- THIS is why we love Facebook! (We were given permission to use this lovely image by the photographer...)
Marcie GM Yep. That's a GIANT pig chilling at the curb on Landover Road. #youdontseethateverydayLauren A. OMG. Seriously?!? Wow.
Kathryn A. That would have improved my mood about a zillion percent! Also, keep Prince George's weird.
Dan S. Awesome.
Dan S. I just wanted to say again how awesome that is.
Lauren A. That's because, Dan S., you have a weird affinity towards farm animals...
Dan S. That's not a farm animal. It's a circus sideshow attraction.
Lauren A. LOL, Dan! I miss you so very much.
Dionne D. What? Why? So many questions...
Aimee O. I saw that pig plus a smaller one on a Redskins game day... Thought it was some sort of play on the Pigskins. It is SO HUGE I can't even imagine how it can get there. Dan -- where are the ChvBlog investigative reporters when we need them??!!!
Dan S. It looks stressed. Someone please adopt it, I will be down on Saturday to pick it up. For bacon.
Caroline B. And yet, we can't have chickens?
Paul W. When I first looked at the picture I thought the guy was walking the pig and the pig had squatted to poop. That would take a big pooper scooper.
Kathryn A. Dan, can you think of a time you haven't felt stressed when you're on Landover Road? Me either.
Stella S. Amazing sight!
Marcie GM I couldn't tell for sure, but it may have been a stunt to draw attention to a Grand Opening in the strip mall on that corner. Brilliant marketing in that many looked, and even stopped...but I can't tell you what was opening. Or maybe it was just a guy hanging out with his giant pig.
Scott K. Only in Maryland lol
Larry K. Mmmmm, bacon.
Denise KC Man, I always miss the cool stuff! Thank-you Marcie for making me smile! And now, where's that bacon.........
Caroline B. makes a very good point. The County doesn't allow beekeeping or chicken coops on residential property, yet someone managed to take an enormous hog for a walk on Landover Road?
Keep Prince George's County weird.
